    I love Van Morrison and he's not Kenny Rogers, the voice is okay but the country tunes do not do it for me. The best Van Album for me is Avalon Sunset, I love all the tracks. This one, a big no! I will skip this album and wait for the next one. Magic Time was excellent too!

    I paid 400.00 for my wife and I to see V the Man I have not seen him since 71, but have all his albums.The 9 or 10 songs from this album tortured me and the 8 songs that represented him were simply wonderful, even tho' the mercurial man did no encore.

  1. Pay The Devil is at the crossroads of country, blues and soul. In his voice is the authority to bring them together.
  2. Pay the Devil reiterates Morrison's own musical diversity and flair for making any song his own.
